The benefits of globalization are unevenly distributed, and it causes hardship for poorer countries. The gap is widening between developed and developing countries. About two-thirds of the developing countries remain on the margins of the globalization process and are considered "nonglobalizers." Globalization can result in unemployment as businesses relocate operations to lower-cost areas. Many of these outsourced jobs don't pay decent enough wages to lift workers out of poverty.
However, due to the fact that the Hispanics only worked during harvest, they did not earn enough money to live comfortably. And when they did work they were paid extremely low wages. A Hispanic worker would only earn around $1,378 a year and thus would have to live in terrible accommodation such as low quality rented flats or in some cases makeshift tents of cars. Many Californians believed that the Hispanic workers were poor because they were lazy; this therefore led to them getting very little to no help at all. Therefore, the Hispanic workers were forced to set up organisations and campaign for their economic rights.
Over-production – Fewer products such as cars, consumer good etc were not being sold as factories were making more goods than Americans needed or could afford to buy. As the number of sells went down, the prices of goods also went down which meant that wages had to be kept low. When this did not work, industrialists had to resort to sacking workers, and because the workers did not have any more money, they could not afford luxury so factories continued to
The lack of motivation caused by years of not having a job and watching your family suffer in poverty is a condition that not too many of us are familiar with. “Native American Poverty,” by Tom Rodgers justifies the allegations that a large percentage, about 25%, of the Native Americans live in poverty. “According to the US Census Bureau, these Americans earn a median annual income of $33,627. One in every four (25.3 percent) lives in poverty and nearly a third (29.9 percent) are without health insurance coverage.” The lack of money has become a huge component in the dismemberment of the culture that the Natives so lavishly submerged themselves into, and the picking up other undesirable traits such as drinking. The
Census Bureau data, as of September 13, 2011, the nation's poverty rate rose to 15.1% which means that we have about 46.2 million people living below the poverty line. In the United States people that earn less than $23,050 and they have a family of 4, these people are considered to be living in poverty. Society has constructed this group in such a way that portrays them as a burden on the entire economic system. Poverty is looked upon as a social issue, but this group is made up with people, that has in most cases, been classified as lazy and unwilling to put in the necessary work to get them out of that situation. Even though financial assistance is supposed to be a means of temporary aid, many aren't looking at it that way Many people are taking advantage of the fact that they can get it and not on the fact of if they need it or not.
English 043 Professor Doreen Kiefer 12/15/13 “The Growing Need of Raising Minimum Wage” Have you ever wonder how many desperate unemployed American citizens there are in the United States seeking for jobs? Well there’re more than eleven million unemployed citizens desperately trying to make a living in this terrible recession. Not only is it affecting our economy but our businesses, and families as well. Even before the recession, our economy was rapidly shifting, with fewer and fewer middle class jobs and opportunities, with fewer and fewer middle class families, which has led to a low growing, low-wage workforce. As of the end of 2011, the United States needed to create roughly 10 million jobs to return to the pre-recession unemployment

Us Americans have it phenomenal while many Mexicans live in poverty, and they just want to provide a better living for their
THE PROBLEM Homelessness Homelessness is a social problem intimately associated with urban areas and the resource limitations that exist because of a populous urban environment. Homelessness exists since college is less aﬀordable for the average Indian than it is for the average North American or European citizen due to their lower per capita income level, more people in India are becoming unemployable for the jobs of the 21st century. Some people are homeless because they are uneducated, and they remain uneducated because they are homeless. This is the vicious cycle they are trapped in. An increasing number of migrants looking for employment and better living standards are quickly joining India's homeless population.
Individuals with lower levels of education tend to deal with economic problems. In this fast growing and demanding era, living cost can be an issue for those who cannot meet the demand.
